Dr. Jennifer Bencie, an administrator of the Manatee County Health Department says, "providing flu shots to employees at their workplace saves time for employers and employees. This year's flu activity is higher than we've seen in the past. It is not too late to receive a flu vaccine and it is the best tool we have to protect ourselves against the virus."

Flu shots are recommended for individuals older than six months. Flu shots are offered at $25 per person, and can also be obtained at the Manatee County Health Department. Medicare Part B is accepted.

For more information, call the Manatee County Health Department (941) 748-0747, ext. 1476.
